Yes, WTF stands for What The Faulk?!
If you somehow made it through William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury and went away thinking that it’s pretty much unfilmable, this trailer for the movie version of it proves your ass right!
In “Something That Should’ve Never Happened In This Lifetime Or The Next” news, someone gave money to James Franco to direct and act in The Sound and the Fury, which also stars Seth Rogen (????) and Danny McBride (????????). Franco directed and wrote an adaptation of As I Lay Dying a couple of years ago, so I’m just going to assume that he not-so-secretly hates William Faulkner and has made it his goal in life to take a diarrhea on all of Faulkner’s works.
The Sound and the Fury follows the fall of the Compson family in the early 20th century. Franco put on a cheap mold of Gary Busey’s teeth to play Benjy, the disabled Compson son. Don’t expect to see the Funny or Die logo anywhere in this trailer, because this is one hundred percent serious:
I would not be surprised if the studio decides to retool that mess and release it as a remake of Simple Jack.
